Darth Plagueis: Star Wars Book Summary

He was the most powerful Sith lord who ever lived.
But could he be the only one who never died?
“Did you ever hear the Tragedy of Darth Plagueis the Wise? It’s a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise that he could use the Force to influence the midi-chlorians to create life. He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying.”
—Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith
Darth Plagueis: one of the most brilliant Sith Lords who ever lived. Possessing power is all he desires. Losing it is the only thing he fears. As an apprentice, he embraces the ruthless ways of the Sith. And when the time is right, he destroys his Master—but vows never to suffer the same fate. For like no other disciple of the dark side, Darth Plagueis learns to command the ultimate power . . . over life and death.
Darth Sidious: Plagueis’s chosen apprentice. Under the guidance of his Master, he secretly studies the ways of the Sith, while publicly rising to power in the galactic government, first as Senator, then as Chancellor, and eventually as Emperor.
Darth Plagueis and Darth Sidious, Master and acolyte, target the galaxy for domination—and the Jedi Order for annihilation. But can they defy the merciless Sith tradition? Or will the desire of one to rule supreme, and the dream of the other to live forever, sow the seeds of their destruction?

Features a bonus section following the novel that includes a primer on the Star Wars expanded universe, and over half a dozen excerpts from some of the most popular Star Wars books of the last thirty years!

Darth Plagueis: Star Wars - James Luceno Reviews

  • Loved it!

    By GreyJediBay
    First Star Wars book I've read and it's inspired me to read more.
  • Love it

    By Steven12:4
    I wish they could make this canon again or make a movie about this book fantastic book
  • Awesome

    By Superbrose 10
    This was by far the best Star Wars book I have ever read. This is a political drama within the backdrop of the Star Wars Galaxy. The author did an excellent job of linking The main characters with the Star Wars movies.
  • Less about Plagueis more about Sideous

    By Da Gopherboy
    Good read, will encourage watching episodes one and two with a new perspective. Although the book is titled Darth Plagueis, there is just as much writing about Palpatine (borderline more) than the subject of the book.
  • Bland

    By JaredLambert
    Just wasn't a good story. Mostly because of Palpatine. This book made me glad that Disney did away with these stories being canonical.
  • Fave Star Wars book ever

    By Lannistark741
    This book will make you view The Phantom Menace in a whole new, considerably less crappy light. Darth Plageuis is responsible in a behind-the-scenes way for so many events that happen in the timeline of the 7 movies. Will really give you a sense of the evil brilliance of Palpatine, and the role of Darth Maul as well. SO good. Should be canon.
  • Confirmed!

    By MrAttackEyebrows
    There's a book about him? Plagueis = Snoke confirmed!
  • Wow

    By TigersJC86
    They don't write them like this anymore. Really enjoyed this novel. Couldn't put it down. Ties in well with the Prequels but gives it the true Star Wars feel
  • A good Star Wars book but not the best

    By Gambit86
    This book was a good read and I would recommend it. However, the book is more about the intellectual side of how Palpatine becomes emperor and his cunning manipulation of politics rather than about Darth Plageus and his reign as Sith master. If you have read other Star Wars books such as the Darth Bane series or the Grand Admiral Thrawn series you will be disappointed in the lack of action and page turning excitement that those two series had to offer. Again I would still recommend this book to anyone who likes the Star Wars universe but beware before you read it isn't an action packed page turner. 7/10
  • Great

    By JLMess
    Definitely my favorite Star Wars book to date. Great character development of both Plagueis and Palpatine that adds so many new layers to the mythos surrounding the prequel trilogy. This book actually enhanced my viewing experience of the prequel films. The author also does a wonderful job of incorporating references to the overall Sith plan established by Darth Bane and developed for hundreds of years by each pair of Sith up until the point of Sidious himself. Luceno even tackles the controversial topic of midichlorians and develops the biological basis of the Force into a very interesting plot regarding the origins of Anakin and the scientific side of the Sith. Overall, a great read and a great starting point for new readers to the Star Wars books.
